Sunday Outfit

I was never a fan of black and navy together, to me it was a fashion faux-pas, a bit like pink and red and well all wore that one last summer didn't we? So here I am wearing dark navy with black. I saw this coat on Laura from Wearing it Today, it's from New Look and an absolutely bargain. What do you think of no-no colour combinations? Is there anything you would NEVER ever wear?

Coat: New Look | Top: Zara | Jeans: Zara | Shoes: Topshop | Necklace: Elephantine

  5. Beautiful coat-very elegant. Can't believe how green the grass is in London. Looks like Spring instead of late Fall.

  6. I totally understand, but I've come to kind of love black with navy, especially when neutrals like camel are mixed in.
